Greetings from cold, rainy and 'hard-to-find-some-working-wifi' Milwaukee, Wisconsin!
I am here today to attend and present at the MRA's Annual Human Resources Conference titled : 'Take Your Game to the Next Level'. The MRA is a large professional employer's organization that serves members in the Midwest with development, learning, and other resources to help make them more effective.
An HR Conference being held at a baseball stadium with a 'sports' theme running all the way through the event? I am in!
My session is called 'Hitting the Curveball: Leadership in the Social Age', and is centered around some of the challenges that leaders and organizations face in the new world of openness and transparency, and offers some (I hope), useful suggestions for getting more comfortable and effective in this new environment.
I just uploaded the slides I will use today to Slideshare - you can take a look at them here, and they are also embedded below (email and RSS subscribers will need to click through to see the presentation).
Let me know what you think of the slides, it was not easy finding all the 'right' images to try and illustrate this topic.
Thanks very much to the great folks at MRA for inviting me to come to the event today, I just wish a Brewers game was on!
